I hear that the Revolt of the Women
in the French revolution was nothing
to what occurred in a certain hair dress
ing parlor on Fourteenth street late last
Friday afternoon before the first recep
tion of the Lincoln club. There were
clamoring and unguish and despair as
two dozen excited women sat about
with dishevelled locks awaiting their
"turn." There were groans and en
treaties and prayers enough to make
any ordinary hair dresser lose her head,
'but the ote in question lost neither her
presence of mind nor her old time skill,
for when the two dozen women ap
peared at the party in the evening they
were radient and beaming and their
coiffeurs were things to dream of.

The university botanical library is in
receipt of cne of the most beautiful of
scientific works ever published in this
country. It is a work on the Si fa of
North America in eight huge volumes
by Chas. Sprague Sargent. Th whole
work is printed upon Holland linen and
the printing ib the work of the River
side Press. The plates were drawn by
C. E. Faxon, probanly the best scien
tific draughtsman in this country, who
has been at work on them for almost ten
years. It was impossible to have the
engraving properly done in this country,
60 the drawings were sent to Paris and
were there engraved by Teneur. The
books cost $25 a volume, but they are
worth it simply as a thing of beauty,
and aside from their immense scientific
There wa6 an interesting meeting of
the Pleacant Hour club Thursday after
noon. Many persons are familiar with
the report of a remark recently
made by the new military instructor at
the State University, Captain Guilfoyle,
about a prominent member of the club,
a remark that was taken as reflecting
on all members of the club who are "in
trade." ThiB matter was under consid
eration in view of the fact that Captain
Guilfoyle had been invited to attend the
club reception last evening. It was an
nounced that the captain would rot be
present, and thereupon a resolution was
adopted unanimously resenting the in
sult cast upon the club and its presi

season last evening with a reception at

Socitty was always a liberal patron of
the races given in connection with the
state fair, and the first meet of the Lin
coln Park association, which will have
its opening day Monday, will probably
call out a large represention from the
social world. Of course the races will
be infinitely superior to anything of the
kind ever seen in Lincoln, and the after
noons of next week will afford a splen
did opportunity for the birds of
plumage to show their ffne feathers. In
New York the annual horse show has
come to be known as the beauty show,
and the indications are that the fall and
spring races in this city will be the
occasion of a brilliant demonstration on
the part of society. The management
has provided forty-four boxes, and a
large number of these have already
been engaged, some of them for the en
tire week. Racing parties will be quite
the thing next week, particularly Mon
day, whieh will be Lincoln day.
One of the old books at the rooms of
the State Historical sooiety should be
very interesting to Lincoln people. It
is the old register of XebraskanB at the
Philadelphia centennial of 187G. Only
about seventy pages out of the 400 are
decorated with that artless penmanship
which only a register can show. An ex
ception should perhaps be made of the
first page, which is written in one uni
form hand, as if the register came late
to the centennial. Among the names
that appear on this first page are J. C.
McBride, Mrs. D. B. Cropsey, Bruno
Tzschuck and wife, Amasa Cobb, Sam
uel Owen and wife, Lincoln; also Silas
Garber, Mrs. Garber, P. W. Hitchcock,
Mrs. Hitchcock, Iorenzo CrounBe, and
R. W. Furnas. Some who wrote their
names after their papas' names and
others who left that matter altogether
to the fond parent, have grown to man
hood or womanhood since 1876, and now
have homes of their own. It is surpris
ing how many names occur of Lincoln
ites whose faces may be seen daily about
the streets. Such are O. A. Mullen,
Isaac M. Raymond. David May, W. W.
Wilson, A. 0. Zeimer, S. B. Pound, Mrs.
S. B. Pound, Grace Griffith, A.M. Davis
G. M. Lambertson, L. W. Billingsley, L.'

B. Wright, T. H. Leavitt. E. tl. Andrus
registered from Kearney as "Land
Agent for the Great Loup Valley," and
on the following page from Blooming
ington as "Land Agent for the Republi
can Valley." Brevity forbids mention
of the names of those who used to be
6een in Lincoln, tut who have scat
tered to other states or to foreign parts,
like V. E. Farmer, Victor Vifquain, G.'
E. Howard and Samuel Aughey. Manv,
too, whose names are written in the
Centennial book as citizens of Lincoln
have gone from us forever.
